The Wine Advocate Cairanne Les Hautes Rives Blanc 2015

The 2015 Cairanne les Hautes Rives Blanc is a fresh, elegant white that, while a touch tight and closed, offers classy notes of buttered citrus, white flowers and hint of pineapple. Give this medium-bodied, impeccably balanced beauty six months or so of bottle age and drink it over the following year or two. The blend is 70% Clairette and 30% Roussane, and it’s a solid value well worth checking out.
